Village People

Last week several of the local neighborhoods joined forces to put on one huge concert in the park. The Answer was the band and they provided the official entertainment for the evening. The unofficial entertainment were all my neighbors in their Disco Fever best.

img_3465-1I was invited to relive the 70’s at Studio 54 complete with disco ball and chandeliers (run off a car battery set up by our electrical engineer friend ūüôĆ). Everyone brought food, potluck style. My favorite was the “Crack.”¬† Oh don’t make THOSE¬†assumptions, this is a super yummy toffee that our friend Nancy makes.¬† Sheesh.. just because I mentioned Studio 54.

The dance floor was packed. Everyone was celebrating.  People were neighborly.  It was awesome.

How to be Neighborly: Be silly together.

I am so lucky to live here. These are my people. My village people, that is.

Nancy’s “Crack” Toffee Candyimg_3470

  • 4 ounces saltine crackers
  • 1 c butter
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 2¬†c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 c pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line cookie sheet with saltine crackers in single layer.  In a saucepan combine the sugar and the butter. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Immediately pour over saltines and spread to cover crackers completely.  Bake for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Let sit for 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate and top with chopped nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.
